When I was little I use to sit on this stool at my grandma's house. I have many fond memories of sitting on this stool.
It has seen better days. I have been prompted several times to let it go, but just didn't want to part with the memories.
I took it apart. Look what was inside . . . before the days of foam padding.

I ran over a bicycle at 7 am this morning that was left in the drive way as I backed my car out of the garage in the dark. Car and bike are still okay.
I had to put mascara on the top of Justin's head to cover his bald spot. Although this does seem unusual I have done it every morning this week before school. I gave Justin a short haircut last weekend assuming his hair had grown enough over the last couple of weeks since Jay pulled a large chunk of his hair out. But . . . no . . . it had not grown in enough . . . and so mascara seemed to do the trick.
We had 27 teenagers come and go at our home from 3 pm until midnight . . . a bunch of good teenage kids that feel comfortable hanging out in our home. I think it's great.

Pride and Prejudice. Can you believe I have never read or watched this before? Was I out to lunch the day everyone talked about Jane Austen in my youth? Loved it! Thank you to my brother, Larry, for sending the movie to me. I stayed up way too late one night because I didn't want to stop watching.
Enchanted. Very cute. Fairy tale meets the real world . . . and . . . they lived happily ever after.
Have you ever tasted caviar? Yes. I loved it.
What is your favorite cookie? I can't think of a cookie that I don't like.
Do you prefer sweet or salty snacks? Once in a while I like salty but usually I pick sweet.
Do you drink milk or are you lactose intolerant? I love milk!
Do you like spinach? Fresh spinach, yes. Cooked spinach in a recipe, yes, but not just by itself.
Do you like liver? No, no, and no!
Do you prefer milk chocolate or dark chocolate? Milk chocolate but I wouldn't turn down any dark chocolate.
Italian, Chinese, or Mexican food? I love all food. Out of the three I would have to say Mexican would be my favorite.
Do you chew gum? Yes. I always have a pack in my purse. I use to chew at least a stick a day but now I probably only chew a couple of times a week.
And I tag everyone on my list of "Blogs I Read." Copy this post, switch my answers for yours, and post the Food Meme to your blog.

My favorite apron is a Christmas one that covers everything and crosses in the back with no ties. It is easy to put on and so comfortable that I often forget I have it on until I am getting ready for bed.
I feel a little silly wearing a red and green Christmas apron all year long so I decided to make another one in blue and chocolate. I bought the material several months ago (as you can recall in an earlier post). I made the chocolate binding a while back because I knew it would be tedious. A couple of months later I cut out the apron. And there it sat on my sewing counter for who knows how long because there was always another project to work on.
Today I finally stitched it together.
